From the Heart: Rav Shalom Arush Speaks to Deaf Yeshiva Students

When we were in Toronto, Rav Shalom Arush placed highest priority to giving an emuna lesson in Toronto's Yeshiva for the Deaf - the only one like it in the world. This is the type of project that we use Emuna Outreach funds for. See this priceless clip:

Today is the last day for you to make your generous tax-deductable donation to Emuna Outreach and have it deducted from your 2014 income, and to help us continue this sacred work worldwide. Simply click on the "Support Emunah Outreach" donation button on the top left-hand toolbar of this site. As Rav Shalom Arush says, there is no greater mitzva. Happy 2015!


Crack in the Wall

 

Crack in the Wall

On the Tenth of Tevet, Nebuchadnezzar began his siege of Jerusalem. Actually, there was little damage on that first day and no Jews were killed. So why is this day so tragic? G-d willing, today's emuna shiur will answer this question as well as give us a deeper insight as to why the Tenth of Teveth is still so relevant today.

Today's shiur (lesson) and live broadcast, entitled "Crack in the Wall", is one that you don't want to miss. It takes place this evening (Wednesday) at 7:00 PM local time at our Chut Shel Chessed Yeshiva, 13 Shmuel Hanavi Street, Jerusalem, in the main sanctuary. You can see today's lesson here - the broadcast, as well as our lessons posted from now on - are Mac and iPod compatible. If you tune in too early to the live broadcast link, you'll be sent to the main page of the Breslev Israel website, so try to tune in on time

Important notice: Because of Rebbe Natan's yahrtzeit, today's shiur will be filmed in the kollel and not in the main hall of the Yeshiva. We're sorry - the live shiur therefore will not be open to the public. If you are not able to view today's broadcast live, then G-d willing, you'll be able to see the video tape of it on this coming Sunday's Lazer Beams.


The Rooster's Seven Songs

In Perek Shira - The Song of Creation - each creation sings one song, except for the rooster - he sings  seven songs. I always wondered why, especially since Perek Shira is one of my favorite prayers. Yet, I never found an answer until I saw this amazing explanation from Rebbe Natan of Breslev, which I'm delighted to9 share with you in my feature article Rebbe Natan's Rooster, which appears in this week's new issue of Breslev Israel web magazine.

This week's Torah portion is Vayichi. It teaches us that our relative advantages or disadvantages from birth are not what moves us forward or holds us back. It All Depends on Effort...

This coming Wednesday night and Thursday is Rebbe Natan's 170th Yahrtzeit, may his sacred memory intercede on our behalf.

Also featured this week:

Rabbi Shalom Arush - Personal Justice

Dr. Zev Ballen - Death Metal

Ari Davidson - Danger & Safety Ahead

Racheli Reckles - The Bodybuilder Rebbe

Rivka Levy - The Magic Genie

David Perlow - Crying Out for Aliya

Why wait until it's too late? Why wait until you get up to the Heavenly Court after your 120 years on earth, and they tell you that you could have been 10-times more successful than you were? Attaining genuine success is easier than you think...

Big bright Beams blessings for a lovely new week!


Back Atcha

Right back at me

Our speech is a powerful weapon. Just as a racketball bounces off a wall, whatever we say comes right back at us, for good or otherwise...

Today's shiur (lesson) and live broadcast, entitled "Back Atcha", is one that you don't want to miss. It takes place this evening (Wednesday) at 7:00 PM local time at our Chut Shel Chessed Yeshiva, 13 Shmuel Hanavi Street, Jerusalem, in the main sanctuary. You can see today's lesson here - the broadcast, as well as our lessons posted from now on - are Mac and iPod compatible. If you tune in too early to the live broadcast link, you'll be sent to the main page of the Breslev Israel website, so try to tune in on time

As always, the live shiur is open to the public - both men and women are welcome - so if you're anywhere near Jerusalem, come on by! If you are not able to view today's broadcast live, then G-d willing, you'll be able to see the video tape of it on this coming Sunday's Lazer Beams.
